The genealogy of Jesus fascinates me. It’s amazing to be able to read all down the line to Abraham! And to see all the names that we recognise, all the people who God protected fiercely, faithfully, and lovingly to preserve the line of David all the way to our Saviour.
Last year as I created this multi media Advent page I got so caught up in this genealogy that I had to write it all out down and then around the page!
Going deeper: Read this verse in context. What stories from the Bible does it bring to mind? Has one been particularly meaningful to you this year? If so, you might like to go back and read about Rahab, Ruth, Jacob, or another of the links in this precious chain.
